Frequently Asked Questions
What is commercial combined insurance?
Insurance for warehouses, wholesalers, manufacturers, workshops, factories, importers and hundreds of commercial properties and businesses is also known as commercial combined insurance.
What does commercial combined insurance cover? (List the essentials and optional policy features).
It covers a variety of risks including commercial liability insurance and business insurance cover and is tailored for each client to build a package which suits the needs of your business.
My business has previous claims, how can you help me?
Business insurance is not as simple as home insurance or car insurance. When a commercial insurance policy is put together, your business will be assed for potential risk on a case by case basis.
Having a previous claims on your business insurance means that a potential risk caused an incident of some kind, and what brokers and insurers want to know is what was done to minimise that risk to avoid it happening again. In some cases, if we can show the lesson was learnt and the risk is subsequently now lower, this can help you avoid any rises in premium.
Do I need to include contractors in our insurance?
Possibly not if they have their own insurance. However we do offer contingent liability for bona fide sub-contractors. All contractors should have at least the same level of public liability cover as you. Speak to one of our advisors to discuss your circumstances.
If I employ staff within my business is it required by law to have employers liability as part of my package?
In most cases UK businesses with any amount of staff, whether they are full time, part time, volunteers, interns or freelance staff will need employers’ liability insurance as a legal requirement. One of our advisors will be able to add this to your quote or to your policy at any time you take on a member of staff.
Do I need to tell my employees that I have employers' liability insurance?
When you take out or renew a policy including employers’ liability insurance with us we will provide you with a certificate of employers’ liability insurance that will state the companies covered by the policy. This must be displayed where your employees can read it. You may display your certificate electronically but if you choose to do so you must ensure that your employees know how and where to find it and have reasonable access.
